SO TRUE. I’m 99% sure I’m just going to order everything once it goes online & overnight it, then do swatches at my leisure, in my PJs, on the 26th. It’s worth it NOT to have to wake up at 5am and get to the mall and deal with the craziness 🙁

I definitely agree with both of you, going mall the day after x’mas is like goin mall on black friday! I hate crowds, too crazy! Great collection though!

same here, my mom is gonna give my my mac giftcard early so i can order it. im definitely not going to the mall the day after christmas, especially after the walmart incident

Does anyone know if these are stickers (i.e. the glasses on the packing)? $10 says it starts to peel right off in your purse/makeup bag if they are!

I like the look of the colors; wonder if they are very pigmented? I just can’t get past the old-lady vibe with actual Edna herself and the retro glasses print on the packaging. I know some others will disagree… Just funny how this one feels a little ‘old-lady’ and then Hello Kitty will come out and feel a tiny bit little-girlish. I love MAC; so eclectic!

I have been told that they’re raised parts of the packaging and not stickers, but I don’t know for sure. Hopefully someone else can chime in 🙂

On the trios, it has a clear cover over the glasses, on the lipsticks and glosses it’s a sticker. Our testers already have the stickers peeling off from being put in and out of the boxes. :\

I saw the high lite powders today and unfortunatly they are stickers. But the powders are gorgeous!! So pretty an such a smooth texture, I think I will be getting both!

I’m getting the nail polishes I know for sure lol.

I’m going to have to look at the colors in person.I usually shy away from glittery lipglosses/glasses.So I know I’m passing those.I really like that light blue eyeshadow in the first palette.And I like the second palette.

I super love the packaging on this collection, but I have to admit that none of the colors are really standing out to me. It all seems a little “Well I’ve already got a similar color …” you know?

I work for MAC so here’s a lil info. Dame Edna is doing ok so far, the matte pink/fuschia color Gladiola is really worth getting, it’s like the color Girl about Town but with a creamy matte finish and a bit more pop. And both eyeshadow pallettes are really doing well and suprisingly verstile, we dont have colors like them in the regular shadows. ANd to comment on Dame Edna’s gender, okshe is a man, named Barry Humphries and he’s been around as Dame Edna for quite awhile now, at least 10 years. MAC launches collections like this to show that makeup can be fabululous even if the the icon is someone you wouldnt have expected. In makeup there are no rules, if it looks good to you, wear it! Also the lashes in the new line LASH n Dash are amazing. My favorites are the #2’s. Ok so im excited about Hello kitty! This is a dream! Even we cant wait! Ill get a sneek peek and hands on in about a week! YAY! One bit of advice, buy it all, buy it quick, and do not share with anybody! This puppies are going to be collectibles!

Thanks for the info 🙂 It’s always good to get an insider’s point of view! I just know HK will definitely sell out — no question about it!

I will check out Lash & Dash next time I’m at MAC. I’m hopeless at false lashes, so I didn’t bother to really get a good look at the launch.

Um…. yuck. NOT my thing. As a redhead, I see all of the lippies looking clownish on me, and I’m not really too thrilled about blue eye shadow either, although I do occasionally give it a whirl. I’m really not excited about Dame Edna at all – which is making my wallet VERY happy. 😉
